Reading UK, 26 February 2008: DediPower, one of the UK's fastest growing managed hosting providers, today announced they have been selected by Risk Analysis Services to provide a managed hosting solution to underpin a recently launched business continuity programme called Crisis Pro (www.crisispro.co.uk). DediPower will deliver a managed hosting business server solution in multiple locations to meet Risk Analysis Services business continuity requirements.

Business continuity is crucial with the survival rate of companies not planning for disasters is estimated at around 20% and few firms surviving catastrophic IT failure beyond 1 year.* DediPower’s multiple data centres enable enterprises to protect their critical data for business operations.

“Because we supply risk management solutions, we have very specific and rigorous needs relating to security. Our own continuity arrangements are integral to our operations so we wanted a managed hosting supplier who could meet our strict requirements,” commented Joe Aspey, Director, Risk Analysis Services. “If critical resources were not available or data was not securely managed, this could have security implications for our customers and a negative impact on our business. We needed to protect access to our data and that is why we chose DediPower.”

DediPower’s Managed Hosting provides enterprises with business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for customers who want to protect their data, with two purpose built data centres and a third site for disaster recovery. DediPower business server solutions provide custom built high-specification dedicated servers combined with a world-class hosting infrastructure that has been designed to ensure the highest levels of network uptime, availability, flexibility and security. Focused on delivering service excellence, DediPower offers one of the best services level agreements in the industry today and is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and RedHat Ready Hosting Partner.

“Companies with business continuity capabilities are more likely to survive a major incident than those who aren’t and Risk Analysis Services is working with SME’s to understand the risks in business and the need for protecting their intellectual assets. The need to respond to changing conditions quickly and effectively protect your data is a crucial reason why Risk Analysis Services selected a managed hosting solution,” said Craig Martin, CEO, DediPower.
